What do you do about this?
This is a picture of Avery's severely abused thumb. She is an avid thumb-sucker these days and has managed to beat her little thumb to a pulp. The picture doesn't do it justice. Her poor thumb is as red as a tomato, blistered, and cracked. It looks really painful, but she doesn't act like it bothers her a bit. It makes Mommy VERY sad to look at. I'm thinking that we need to go to the doctor, but I have this fear that he will tell me that I need to try to break her from thumb-sucking. That is one of her biggest pleasures in life. I just don't know if I have the heart to do that just yet.
